  Mini#37 Best of 2017, So Far
Entry 11 of 28
   
 
Kite in the tree       ©2017 kerszkavet
Panasonic DMC-FZ150       11th place, 86 points
1/400s, f5.2, ISO 160, 600mm, Shutter Priority, Center Weighted Average, no flash
 
Post-Processing: sharpen, noise, crop, clone out branch       Extra Info: Kites were reintroduced to England in the early 1990s in the Chiltern Hills, and have bred in the wild, now frequently congregate in the village of Stokenchurch.

This one was enjoying late evening sunshine in a village tree, and keeping an eye on everything (including me)

I wanted a title that echoed Charlie Brown's kite-eating tree, but couldn't quite manage it...

    This picture is absolutely stunning. The vivid detail was captured to perfection!

    How about "Kite Eating in Tree (or at least thinking about it...)"?
Nice sharp capture, good light; end-on view isn't the most appealing, though it does show the distinctive forked tail.

    The feathers turn out beautifully. Good sharpness. In my favorites.

    I like the unusual aspect of the photo. You've really captured the intensity of his stare. The detail is crisp, and the bright blue sky is a perfect backdrop.

    Wow. What a great image. Was this hand-held? I am impressed with the sharpness. Great job.

    Beautifully detailed bird portrait. His tawny gold colours show well against the blue.

    Usually I don't like shots of the rear of a bird, but the way you caught the eye really makes the photo. The pic is sharp, nice colors very, very nice. Wow, well done!
